I guess I don't see the complications. Have someone in IT set up a server for you. Install the server version of your CM tool. Store all the files in the CM tool's watched directories. Then send an email out to everyone saying "If you want to get to the Pelican Brief, then you have to access it via the CM tool.

Really not a big deal, I think. Maybe 2 days worth of work. I guess the hard part is getting management to buy into the idea and sell it to their teams; teaching people how to use it (or writing a tutorial); getting purchasing to OK the license expenditure; getting IT to install the box and add it to the network, protect it with the firewall, and add its contents to their backup schedules; and then teach an FTE how the system works 'cause you're leaving.

Hmmm. Maybe 8 weeks IS more like it. Better get cracking. :)
